Abstract:

"Studying English Literature and Language" is unique in offering both an
introduction and a companion for students taking English Literature and
Language degrees. Combining the functions of study guide, critical dictionary
and text anthology, this is a freshly recast version of the highly acclaimed
The English Studies Book.

This third edition features:

-fresh sections on the essential skills and study strategies needed to
complete a degree in English—from close reading, research and referencing
to full guidelines and tips on essay-writing, participating in seminars,
presentations and revision

-an authoritative guide to the life skills, further study options and career
pathways open to graduates of the subject

-updated introductions to the major theoretical positions and approaches
taken by scholars in the field, from earlier twentieth century practical criticism
to the latest global and ecological perspectives

-extensive entries on key terms such as 'author, 'genre', 'narrative' and
'translation' widely current in debates across language, literature and culture

-coverage of both local and global varieties of the English language in a range
of media and discourses, including news, advertising, text messaging, rap,
pop and street art

-an expansive anthology representing genres and discourses from early elegy
and novel to contemporary performance, flash fiction, including writers as
diverse as Aphra Behn, Emily Dickinson, J.M. Coetzee, Angela Carter,
Russell Hoban, Adrienne Rich and Arundhati Roy

-a comprehensive, regularly updated companion website,
http://www.routledge.com/cw/pope-9780415498760/, supplying further
information and activities, sample analyses and a wealth of stimulating and
reliable links to further online resources.

"Studying English Literature and Language" is a wide-ranging and invaluable
reference for anyone interested in the study of English language, literature
and culture.
